Memorial North Park Renews Designation as Chest Pain Center


The Society of Chest Pain Centers granted the designation of Accredited Chest Pain Center to Memorial North Park Hospital, Hixson, Tenn., for the second time. The three-year accreditation confirms that a hospital has demonstrated a systematic approach to cardiac services in the emergency department, allowing physicians to initiate timely, effective treatment in the early stages of a heart attack.
